Eve and Adam and Their Very First Day (Hardcover)
"Gloriously beautiful and tender." --Kirkus Starred Review
In this unusual retelling, the biblical story of creation is told from Eve's perspective and explores what it might have been like emotionally for the world's first two people to experience everything for the very first time--seeing and naming the animals; feeling the rain; fearing the night; becoming excited by the stars, and having faith that they are not alone.
Lush illustrations bring the wonder of the new world to life, while children will enjoy looking for the recurring cat and dog characters throughout the story.
The story stops well before the infamous apple-eating scene, focusing instead on themes of curiosity, discovery, new experiences, handling fear, and having faith. Author's note further explores the nature of faith for young children.
"Kimmelman employs soaring highly descriptive language imbued with gentle humor, imagination, wonder, and awe, brought to vivid life by Avgustinovich's lush artwork." --Kirkus Reviews
